, mayor, thank you housing authority. thank you. >> mary harris. cathy davis. >> mary harris, president of my neighbors in action. on february 2 we had a lunar new year celebration at the rec center. when we got up there, my husband and i noticed there was just this very tense vibration and we found out that lawrence collins was shot and killed at the rec center. so we lost another youth in the omi. we have had youth shot in front of inner city youth, we have had them shot in front of the omi family resource center. we were devastated, he was going to be 20 years old. as i was going to get ready to speak tonight. i went in my office and these 3 x 5 cards fell out. and i picked then up and read them. and then i realized that seven years ago with a different mayor and a different supervisor, i have been saying the same words, talking about the omi and violence prevention. and i can't believe i am here again and talking about the same thing. i am asking mayor lee work with the omi to come up with a violence prevention plan. i want diana, i am happy that you made director of violence preven
senator rand paul and senator mike leigh is writing a short and simple letter to harry reid that said we will filibuster any legislation that undermines the second amendment rights to keep and bear arms. >> jon: ooh! they did it. and their filibuster was able to defeat the gun control bill including the marchion-toomey amendment, supported by 90% of americanamericans and 55 out of0 senators. here is tyranny earlier, crews cruz talking about a gun rights bill he thwarted. >> that bill got 52 votes in the u.s. senate, including nine democrats. what happened? harry reid and the rest of the democrats filibustered the bill and killed it, demanding 60 votes.ñr >> jon: you know it's the same ( bleep ) thing, right? look, sheers what's crazy. we all want the same thing. bad guys not to have guns. some people, including myself, believe a good way to do, that at least to start, is too check who's buying them, or make the guns somewhat traceable so when the bad guys get them we can figure out how. not wait for a bad guy to draw and then draw faster. which, by the way, if that's what you want, ok
harry row have raised questions but i'm going to support the contract >> thank you supervisor. this is important even though the airport is a advertised. first of all, i want to thank mr. martin the entire budget analyst office perhaps we can lesson our reliance an blood pressure pills but some how i we - i find quite frankly this has to do with the charger exchange contract as well i would agree with the supervisors comment i love to support the union folks and this is a financial issue right here about the contract with clear channel and it's really 24 decisions you kind of trust what the staff knows but you reject it because it's not a typical a structure. and it's very clear had there are the vast majority if not ail the advertisement contracts include 8 percent and a making. i guess from envy prospective i approach this for a high bar for us to dive in and reject a contract and i think the fact that one i like the fact that the advertisement locations are going down but i want to say that i disagree with some contractors that building e binged more on a contract will get
people from my staff, harry who is here with her new baby and stephanie and others who put hours into staffing these issues. i especially want to acknowledge the community coalition. this is a victory for them at the end of the day. there are so many organizations and you will see a list of them that they are the ones who have been advocating for making sure that this project be build, but that it be built right and i want to thank them for making that happen. we are here today because of your efforts, and we as a board, we as a city are grateful for the true contributions you have made. thank you, let's give the coalition a big round of applause and i especially want to acknowledge that liaison, paul kumar, i don't see him in the crowd. i think it's fair to say that paul was an integral part to making this happen. thank you paul for your great work. let me talk about saint luke's, in life you come to full circle. i first came to saint luke's when i finished school. i graduated and didn't have health insurance and i was pretty sick and i didn't know what to do. i learned about s
closing 15,000 for the first time in history. the s&p reaching record high as well. roy harris is here to tell us all about it. but first, let's take a look at what happened on the day. the dow jones up 87 points. the s&p is up more than eight points. the nasdaq gaining almost four points. 3.3 billion. in the commodity market, gold is down. crude oil dropping -- the ten-year closing at a yield of 1.70%. economic growth issue, it should be better than most economists. joining us now is mari harris. i guess we bout these things. >> yes, let's talk about how this looks. >> okay, so this wasn't supposed to happen in the minds of many. because the market would be indicating that the economy was going to slow to zero. >> i think what is happening is that we are finding out what the fed has done with this quantitative easing has been more stimulative than a lot of people expected. they keep sticking the fed's money in their pocket. >> as you look at all of the discussion by particularly the obama administration about stimulus, my lord,. >> this is 85 billion a month. how much the fed is pouri
. >> it is. >> announcer: "world news now" continues after this from our abc stations. >>> prince harry scheduled to visit a new jersey community devastated by sandy. next week he will take a tour of ten damaged homes. >> it has been a monumental effort to rebuild the communities as it was a heroic effort to save lives during the storm. abc's sam champion has a look at efforts in breezy point. >> first the wind. then the water. and then, a furious fire swept through. a triple shot of destruction by super storm sandy. unleashed upon the small beach community of breezy point in queens, new york. >> destroyed. it's like the apocalypse hit. >> don't know where they're going to take us. you don't know where. >> reporter: today those who lost everything remember their volunteer firefighters. who never stopped battling to save their community. >> the water kept coming in. >> reporter: as the water rose marty and his team had to flee the firehouse. in wave whipping waters, eight feet high. and then in the midst of all the flooding, a fire sparks. quickly growing to a six-alarm blaze. marty and
the famous mayor, mike bloomberg, in his group. harry reid's aides met with staffers of michael bloomberg to warn them targeting vulnerable mark pryor on gun control could backfire on the party. ads from the bloomberg-funded mayors against illegal guns are going up now in alaska, arkansas, and north dakota, three states with democratic senators who broke with the white house on last month's background check vote my question tonight, who is more likely to forgive gun votes, the nra or gun safety people? blanche lincoln and howard fineman is editorialfineman, of course, msnbc political analyst. senator, it seems to me we have a challenge here. we have a failure to communicate, as a movie once said. my question is if you're mr. pryor, mark pryor, from your state, the razorback state, are you more afraid of mike bloomberg or the nra or is that too loaded a question? >> obviously, beware of both, but mark is a smart, intelligent person, he's a thoughtful legislator. >> he told mike bloomberg to bug out. >> yeah. the point here is, if we want to do something about guns, we have to find consensu
. they got in the car and took off. >> so did police miss signs? let's ask former nypd detective harry houp. >> in terms of what police did or did not miss two neighbors came forward saying they called authorities to the home because of suspicious behavior or pounding on the windows they heard also another neighbor allegedly saw a woman crawling naked in the backyard called authorities. authorities responded to the scene, i am assuming but did not enter the home. why? >> first of all we are talking about calls that weren't confirmed yet. >> there will be a record if it in fact happened. >> there's the 911 tape of the caller. they will be able to find that if it occurred. if the police officer responded to a call like that the first thing i would do is speak to the caller tell me what you saw who you saw. explain it to me fully because i need to know if that person in th to be in eminent danger i can go in. based on what this gentlemen said talking about the fact that they saw a woman banging on a window. how hard was she banging on the window with a baby in her hands. did it look like she w
composer roy harris' "duo for cello and piano" from the 1970's. but a tremendous amount of material has been lost, even historic recordings by the likes of george gershwin, frank sinatra, and judy garland. the library was mandated by congress to develop a new audio recording preservation strategy, and brought out a plan earlier this year. among its goals: create a publicly accessible national directory of collections; develop a coordinated collections policy, including a strategy to collect, catalogue, and preserve recordings; construct storage facilities for long-term preservation; and simplify and clarify disparate copyright laws governing historical recordings. it's not an ea task, says the librarian of congress, james billington, but it's a necessary one. >> yeah, there are all kinds of obscure places where things have been preserved, sometimes in people's attics, sometimes in depositories that no longer exist or have changed ownership. its detective work to reassembling what the original product was, as close as possible, and as permanent a new material of reformatting as can be ma
is sort of harry reid and democrats are threatening to kind of torpedo the immigration reform bill by inserting these provisions protecting gay couples, as if it is some kind of special interest provision that they are throwing in there. in fact, this is consistent with the national view on this topic. and so there is a push to make sure that gay couples are included in that. i think it is probably more to think of it as republicans finding excuses to hop off the train on this for their own reasons or just not being able to bring along their very extreme base that is not willing to go along with this. >> when we look down at the state level, illinois was a state that looked like it was going to get marriage equality well before maybe a rhode island or a delaware. there was a big shake up with pat brady who stepped aside because of his support for marriage equality. you point out what is taking place on the national scene and a great piece with senator lahy and what he is able to do. >> the ooriginal proposal talked about for years would create what's called a permanent partnership
. guatemalan harris whitbeck was one of montt's top advisors in the ixil region. he testified for the defense at the trial. >> do they know who shot the bullet? do they know exactly on the date these people were killed? i'm not a scientist. i don't know. >> reporter: in fact, the forensic anthropologists are not that precise. but the bones aren't all that are doing the talking. 30 years ago, an eye in the sky was watching-- a u.s. science satellite called landsat passing overhead. russ schimmer is an expert in geomatics-- the science of gathering, analyzing and interpreting geographic information. he has pored over landsat images of the ixil highlands of guatemala captured before and after montt's rule. he has documented huge swaths of land that were highly vegetated in 1979 and then barren in 1986. schimmer ruled out natural causes, leaving only massive, deliberately set fires as the possible cause. >> there's no way you're going to go out there and light a match and you're going to see some of the areas that were burned are five football fields large and it covers areas which are just huge,
-one, but the regular order, harry reid tried to get it started last night and senate republicans blocked him. when does the clock start? >> we want to go to conference, but we want to go when we have a good chance of actually getting something done.the reason we think it is not -- i want to get a deal. i want an agreement. we do not want to go to conference just for the sake of a joint conference. we want an agreement. this is more of a house thing than a senate thing, but if we go to conference with a monthlong stalemate in conference, which ends up happening is people dig in their positions making it that much harder to get agreement. >> that is your lesson from the supercommittee? our motivation is actually to get to an agreement and the decisions we are making right now is to maximize the likelihood of getting an agreement at the end of the day. >> does that mean that you believe you guys passed to political of a budget and they did pass to political of a budget? >> do i want my budget to become law? i do. but they get that in a divided government, you do not get everything you want. we understand
of story. >> why don't we go to politico? >> would love that. >> joining us for the playbook is john harris. good morning. >> good morning. >> let's talk a little immigration, john, shall we? conservatives duking it out over immigration reform and one round is between marco rubio of jim deminute and heritage foundation. they lined up over their careers but rubio says the one place where i leave jim demint. >> no question, willie. they are both heroes of the tea party movement and that is one of the big variables. maybe the biggest variable in terms of what happens to the cause of comprehensive immigration reform. is there a tea party style revolt within the republican party? you have these two individuals both of whom are on important figures. they are both heroes and on different sides of the issue. yesterday, in marco rubio's office he hosted a group of conservatives trying to get them on board with immigration reform. that's probably a stretch but if he can keep them from having this negative reaction the way they did to, say, health reform that is important in terms of giving other repu
, harry reid said it is insane to give welfare benefits to illegal aliens. now the citizenship thing that we have is insane, and nobody is referring to that. i am just wondering why the politicians don't call out harry reid on that. were you able to understand that? guest: i think so. a lot of times politicians say things during election time, and when it comes time for a bill they change their tune completely. you have a number of senators who will take oath to their constituents that they will not support amnesty, and they create an immigration bill that by any objective standard it really is amnesty, not enforcing the law with respect to a group of people. that is really unfortunate. what we try to do is provide nonpartisan research and analysis on amnesty. we think it is unfair to lawful immigrants like our caller who have been waiting in line, who have done everything right. it is completely unfair for unlawful immigrants to come through the united states without going through the same process. we think it can make the problem -- the problem even worse. our study is very conserv
on the tarmac with machine guns taking the diamonds. six in swits land, one in fraps, and 24 harried in belgium today. don't commit a crime with anybody else because they squeal; right? >> never commit a crime with more than one perp. >> good fellows? >> how about never commit a crime. >> oh, so pure. >> not. >> hitting the california versus texas theme as of late with president obama going to texas tomorrow to tout job creation. even a former california assemblyman compares the states saying if california eliminated its state income tax, just got rid of it, its taxes would be higher than texas. now with the public policy foundation joining us now. welcome to the program, i can't believe this. if california got rid of entirely its income tax, they would be more heavily tax the than texas. explain this to us. >> well, it was amazing to me, but one of the themes heard recently after i moved from california to texas is that, well, texas is accord to tax less because they got all that oil and gas which is what pays for government. well, i looked into the numbers, and oil and gas severance revenues,
, harry reid last night tried to get order, senate republicans blocked them on the. when does the clock starts be? so, we do want to go to conference but we want to go to conference will never good chance of actually getting something done. the reason we think it's not, i want to get a deal. i want to get an agreement. we don't want a good conversation for the sake of going to conference reprint -- were what could conference when we think we can get and a greener. this is more of a house thing than a senate income if we go to conference and have a monthlong stalemate conference, what ends up happening is people dig in their positions and it makes it that much harder to get an agreement at the end of the day. >> is that your lesson from the supercommittee? >> that is my lesson. know that our motivation is to get to an agreement. the decisions we're making right now are to make, maximize the likelihood of getting an agreement at the end of the day. >> does that mean that you believe that you guys have to pass of a political budget and they did speak what do i want my budget to become the

upon the secretary harry patricia by nominating this position. i will work to represent the values of the american people to the government and people of chad at the moment when chad is becoming a stronger part or for the united states and allies in a critical region. my wife has joined me today. amelia has been my closest part or a stronger supporter throughout the career. mr. chairman, members of the committee, through many centuries the people and cultures have shared chats richly diverse environment. these traditions have a unique culture but one face great tension and turbulence since its independent in 1960. chad has been regularly plagued by civil war in a separate periodic struggle with libya, sudan and other countries. today chat is emerging from legacy of internal turmoil and conflict. the rapprochement and 2010 has supported internal stability as a whole. to plays a positive role contributing to peacekeeping efforts. notably a key partner in the community efforts to halt extremists from anticipating and sustaining casualties in the international military intervention in
. this is not a partisan issue. in 1985 ted kennedy, harry reid, joe biden all supported giving public sector employees the flexibility to choose comp time. mr. speaker, i urge my colleagues to support this bill. i cannot think of a better mother's day gift. this is something we can do right now to help families at a time when they need it most. i yield back the balance of my time. the speaker pro tempore: the gentlelady from north carolina yields back. the gentleman from connecticut is recognized. mr. courtney: thank you, mr. speaker. i now recognize the gentlewoman from new york, mrs. maloney, for one minute. the speaker pro tempore: the gentlelady from new york is recognized for one minute. mrs. maloney: i thank the gentleman for his leadership in yielding. i rise in opposition to the republican party's working families flexibility act. it should be named the fake flexibility act. it's failure to advertise truthfully. if you were true, you would call it the more work and less pay act. and under this bill workers would lose the basic guarantees of fair pay for overtime work and time off from work und
